August Is The Month For Shopping

 

August is a special month for Singaporeans because it is marks the nation’s 50th year of independence. And it also happens to be a month full of sales where one can snap up irresistible bargains. I am so broke this August no thanks to all the shopping. Firstly, I had decided to learn how to shop from Taobao.com on my own and I’m so addicted to the site because you can almost find everything on it at low prices. In fact, I’m already on my 3rd shipment now.

Ready to be surprised at 313?

So I was invited to tour around 313 @ Somerset to check out their stores and latest promotions. This was my first time attending such a blog event and I enjoyed it thoroughly.

First and foremost, let me share the latest promotions. Shoppers are definitely in for a treat and pleasant shopping experience at 313 this GSS!

Mega Surprise Machine as shown above is a towering 3m-tall mechanism that remotely represents a huge gum ball machine. To try it, you must be the first 100 every day to pick up a game ticket, which are distributed with a minimum spending of S$80. I got to try it out and won a S$10 Etude House voucher! Woohoo!

If you have not spent any money yet, don’t worry, there’s a game for you to participate in too. Yes, you can win without any minimum spending. Located at the 313 L1 Atrium, you just simply have to hoop onto fasion apparel which adds up to the requested price amount. If you get the amount right (+/- S$20), you will walk away with retailer vouchers from F21, Marche, Esprit & more!

From now till 28th July, you can also try your luck with the 313@Somerset Gacha-Surprise Facebook App! LIKE the 313 Facebook Page so that you can start playing. Players stand to win vouchers from Paradise Inn, Forever21, Esprit, Chomel, Kenny Rogers & more! When you invite 3 friends or more to play, you will receive a token for an extra turn!

We got to tour the shopping mall and OMG, it has been such a long time since I stepped into 313. There have been changes, like some stores which I used to patronized have closed down :( to make way for new stores :)

Now, I’m gonna share with you the stores to watch out for…

Smoothie King located at L1 at the corner of 313, you can see this shop the moment you step off the escalator from the MRT station. There used to be Japanese food stalls in this area. Anyway, if you are a smoothie lover then you are in for a sweet treat because their smoothies are to die for. Really yummy drinks… You can expect nutritional fresh-blended smoothies and other healthy products such as energy bars and snacks from this store.

If you are foodie then 313 is the place to go, check out the food places available at B2 & B3 of the mall and you would be pleasantly surprised.

Clockwise from left to right : Popeyes (B2), Yayoiken, Sushi Express (both located at B3). I think Yayoiken (B3-33/34) is a place to check out, they serve affordable set meals priced at S$9.90 to S$19.90. You get a free flow of authentic japanese rice when dining here. And best of all? The food is delicious. Yes, so what more can one ask for?

If you are seeking for affordable sushi, then check out Sushi Express where everything from Salmon Sashimi to Sea Urchin GanKan is reasonably priced at S$1.50++ only! Seriously, where else can you find such good deals?!?

Now, if you are looking for a place to have dinner and just chill with your pals. Check out the Fish & Co outlet at B3. They have just revamped their menus so get ready to be spoilt for choices. That delectable platter you see in the above photo is one of their latest offering. The lobster was just heavenly… you should really go try it.

Also located at B3 is the Mochi Sweets. These pretty-looking, irresistible treats not only make great desserts but gifts as well. So what is that? Mochi is a traditional Japanese rice cake made of glutinous flour pounded into paste and moulded into shape. Mochi Sweets introduces for the 1st time in Malaysia and Singapore its 12 flavors fully imported chilled mochi. The mochi is sold individually or in set gift boxes of 6 or 12 pieces.

And after you are done with all that eating, why not take a stroll and do some shopping. Check out Victoria’s Secrets Beauty & Accessories at level 1. I love this shop because it has my favourite VS undies! And there’s lots more too like VS bags, beauty products etc. I simply adore the perfume packaging. It has this 50s retro vintage glam feel to it.

This was the loot I got from my shopping trip there and 3 lucky readers of mine got to win these goodies.
